Gateway to the West The Gateway Arch reflects St. Louis' role in the Westward Expansion of the United States during the nineteenth century. The park is a memorial to Thomas Jefferson's role in opening the West, to the pioneers who helped shape its history, and to Dred Scott who sued for his freedom in the Old Courthouse. Hours vary by season.

With the grounds of the Arch under renovation, it can get very hot in a Missouri Summer.

Great biking trail - not the best for hiking... all paved, but the new river front section is amazing.

Nice walk along the river while going to the arch and visiting the downtown area. Great little walk, but as mentioned, they are doing a lot of work in the area.

This trail is under construction & most of it is closed until 2017.
